公牛的眼睛和十字准线

现在正受到很多关注瞄准镜十字线图像萨拉佩林过去常常瞄准20名国会议员,包括Gabrielle Giffords一些捍卫佩林的人指出了这一点民主党领导委员会的这张照片2004年大选后在当时的下届总统选举中,它使用靶心来标记“目标”状态在像我们这样的国家,有着枪支暴力政治暗杀的历史,我也不喜欢这种形象但是有一些显着的差异例如,请注意,大型折扣百货商店连锁店Target的标识是牛眼,而不是十字准线。

Mediaite的Tommy Christopher写道

A bullseye is commonly associated with target practice, and as such, the bullseye itself is the inert, nonliving target. Crosshairs, on the other hand, represent the mechanism by which a target is acquired and killedIt is also an image that resonates in popular culture through countless repetitions, in films and television shows, of the assassin’s POV shotThat the intent was to evoke something like a bullseye (only way tougher), and not the spectre of assassination, is an obvious, yet moot, pointOnce that reasonable objection was raised, the image should have been abandoned.

那些指向这个DLC地图的人暗示着来自双方的每个人都这样做不,他们没有。

你必须疯狂地从字面上理解这种修辞“, 有人说“究竟“, 我说。

Was the message of Palin’s gunsight crosshairs intended to be taken literally? No你知道,我知道,因为你和我都是理智的但不是每个人都理智。

而在共和党候选人Sharron Angle的政治气候中,这种信息的具象性质是多么“显而易见”佩林赞同内华达州参议院竞选多数党领袖哈里·里德,在电台采访中说,“我希望我们没有达到第二修正案的补救措施我希望投票能够解决Harry Reid的问题。“

这是整个第二修正案的案文

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

如何才能采取行动,但计划A是赢得选举,而计划B是使用枪支?

这是佩林对她的政治对手施加十字准线的政治背景

女士Giffords’ district office is the same that had been vandalized — a window broken, perhaps with a pellet gun, the police said — late last March, after the national health care bill passed with support from MsGiffords, who was known as “Gabby” to her constituents.

After that, during her re-election campaign, protesters gathered on most Saturdays on the same corner shouting and holding signs that said things like “Gabby, You’re Gone.”

“On a typical Saturday this corner is filled with Tea Party protesters,” said Brenda Tyler, who was with her husband, Lyndon“I’ve seen signs saying things like ‘It’s time to reload’ and ‘One way or another, you’re gone.’” A real estate agency in the neighborhood had a sign out front that said “Goodbye Gabby” and showed the silhouette of a witch on a broom,” she said星期六它被取消了。

在任何情况下,使用瞄准镜十字准线代表政治对手都是病态的但是,在抗议者持有“以这种或那种方式,你已经离开”的迹象的情况下 - 内华达州的共和党参议员候选人公开谈论“第二修正案补救措施” - 这是危险的我们有些人一直都看到这一点 -悲惨的是,加布里埃尔吉福兹本人由于昨天的无谓,令人心碎的暴力,现在还有更多人看到它。

It’s not @SarahPalinUSA’s fault a violent undiagnosed schizophrenic shot those people, but I’m super-glad I didn’t put up a map like that.

她对发生的事情不负责任贾里德·拉夫纳是但她对自己的言论和宣传材料负责。

佩林针对这些广告的20名国会议员中,有18人失去了席位(包括3名退休并由佩林认可的候选人继承的人)佩林的20个“目标”中只有两个被重新选举,其中一个在昨天的近距离射击大脑。1

如果佩林的瞄准线十字线图像没有任何问题,那么我相信她会在2012年再次使用它。
